    Dr. Heffron was amazing! One of the best doctors I've ever seen - and as someone who has spent extensive amounts of my lifetime with doctors, that really is saying something. I've already recommended him to tons of my friends. I loved how good he was at explaining the procedure and he took extra time to talk about other related matters with me, which you don't get with a lot of providers any more. Very much appreciated!

    Dr Haffron is a great doctor, he explained things to me really well and made sure that I understand what he was going to do and what will happen next. He took some time talking to me, that was great. In these days, many doctors are not taking extra time with patients anymore. :)
